Holy cow, do NOT go into theat kind of debt for a wedding! I think your Boyfriend or Best Friend is totally right in wanting to wait – you should definitely be financially established before you make the leap. I’m glad you two are so great about communicating! ๐Ÿ™‚

awww what a cute post! I am in the same boat as you – we are waiting to be able to afford it. It gets tough because you sometimes get impatient, but it is so much better than going into debt. You want to be able to enjoy the day and not worry about paying it off for the years afterwards!

I looked up from my laptop to a picture of my piercer on my bulletin board with all of his tattoos and piercings (and half shaved head, not quite a mohawk) and giggled.

You two are super adorable! (and I love your shirt…)

What a cute story – and you guys look great together!  He definitely doesn’t look like the stereotypical piercer.

It’s great that you guys communicate with each other so well.  ๐Ÿ™‚  I feel the same way about my guy – he’s totally worth the wait.

If you have already made the commitment to purchase a home together and be paying on a mortgage , which = debt. Why not marriage. I say take advantage of the economy. I have found it ALL to work in my favor. The date should be mutually decided upon and not one sided. Money should not be the reason to keep from making it official. Outline your budget and start looking around and negotiating. The country club where I am going to be married at and have my reception, is FREE for instance. Among many other things….So it’s a blessing. Depends on how ya look at it ๐Ÿ™‚

You two are cute! But I agree with missquenst, you already have such a big commitment to each other, maybe you should at least sit down and see how best and soon you can afford it. If you wait til you can absolutely afford it, it may never actually happen.

You guys are cute and it seems like you have a good view of the situation!  I am a little confused though – why would wedding = 10k+ debt?  I know that weddings can be expensive, but they don’t have to be.  Do you think neither of your parents will help out?  Or if they won’t, do you have any money at all saved up, even just $5k?

You guys are so cute! And I agree with the OP’s that you can have a beautiful wedding for not much $ at all. Just a little creativity, a little research, a little bargaining, and a little help from your friends.

I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man for one of my dear friends, we live in a major metro area where the average wedding is 30k-50k. She did hers for 4-5k. Really. We all helped out. She found a great venue about an hour’s drive away.  One of her friends officiated.  Someone else did decorations. I did the flowers.  It was really nice and old fashioned, becuase her whole community came together to help.  We all knew she’d been engaged for so long, and really wanted to get married even though she barely had any $ to do so. She was sick of waiting until they could afford it, she’d been waiting 10 years! She also wanted a vineyeard wedding and we thought NO WAY we could do that for under 20k. And guess what, we made it happen.

Anything is possible!
